AFTER a bit of lie in we have breakfast and I prepare a nine for the turkey…we have to improvise a brining bag which will, hopefully, do the job. If I see a benefit from the brining process we’ll get a suitable food-grade tub or something for the future.
Margaret and I put up some more lights outside – the wee Christmas tree outside the front door and some round the decking balustrade.
I venture out to pick up the car which we left a few villages away last night. The weather’s not great but I’m halfway when the drizzle turns to torrential rain and the winds whipping up a bit of a storm. I call home and Les comes to rescue me.
Back home I start on the cherry stuffing for tomorrow. Takes a little longer than I plan but it looks good. Matty arrives just as I’m getting it into the oven…then all we need to do tomorrow is heat it through.
After dinner we take a walk along to see Betty, Kirsty and Laurie for a wee while then back home for a nightcap…
